Andreas Varady is “one of the most talented people on this planet, who takes the music back to where it belongs,” says legendary music icon, Quincy Jones Andreas started his ascent to mastering jazz guitar at a very young age. Born of Hungarian Gypsy descent, Andreas was raised in a small town in Slovakia and first began to play the guitar at four years old, tutored by his father, Bandi. Andreas was taught to learn songs by ear; his first tune the “Blue Bossa” jazz standard, and from then on he has continued to pursue the world of jazz music. Andreas has idolized his guitar hero George Benson, and from his early years has often been compared to the guitar legend. Andreas began to explore sharing his talent when his family moved to Ireland in 2007. At just 9 years old, Andreas would perform for the passerby’s of Limerick and Cork Ireland, busking on the streets. People were drawn to young Varady for his talent at such a young age and his lovable performing persona. As an outgoing and determined youth, Andreas reached out to Irish drummer and producer David Lyttle who agreed to meet with him. After the introduction, Lyttle loved him and began featuring Andreas in his band. Lyttle also produced Andreas’ first album Questions in 2010. At this time, Andreas began touring and playing shows at various Jazz festivals throughout Europe. In 2011, at 13 years old, he became the youngest headlining artist at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London. Andreas became featured in shows with Martin Taylor, Tommy Emmanuel, and Louis Stewart. He appeared on the front cover of Guitar Player magazine. In the summer of 2012, Andreas had the opportunity to play at the world famous International Montreux Jazz Festival where he performed in front of festival founder Claude Nobs and record producer and music legend Quincy Jones. A few months after the festival, Quincy signed Andreas to his management company. In October 2013, Andreas Varady signed a record deal with Verve Records under David Foster. He recorded his debut album in January 2014 with producer David Paich. To date, Andreas Varady has performed with a collection of world class musicians including: Frank Vignola, Andreas Oberg, Casey Benjamin, Terell Stafford, Lee Ritenour, Stochelo Rosemberg, Alfredo Rodriguez, Nikki Yanofsky, Henry Cole, Reiner Elizarde, Louis Stewart, Soweto Kinch, and many more.
